Akanda (NASDAQ:AKAN) stock is getting a boost on Friday after the cannabis company revealed it’s considering expanding into the German market.

Akanda is looking into investing in Germany’s cannabis market after the country legalized some recreational marijuana use. The new policy allows individuals to grow three plants and join cannabis clubs to “buy up to 25 grams per day.”

Akanda is optimistic that this new law will result in major growth for the cannabis industry in Germany. The company wants to be part of that as it sees the potential for profits from the expansion.

Katie Field, interim CEO and Director of Akanda, said the following about the news:

“This legislation represents a critical step and illustrates a public policy model for other European Union countries […] Akanda is evaluating opportunities to participate in the leading edge of this market and aspires to provide German consumers with exceptional cannabis products.”
